What are the full lyrics to the SpaghettiOs song?

Tried the Google. Can't find the whole jingle. Anyone know anything beyond the first line?

That's the first line. What's the rest?

The audio is terrible, but here's a 1973 commercial that may contain your answer.

In case you couldn't pull it out of hippybear's link:

The neat round spaghetti you can eat with a spoon,
Uh-oh, SpaghettiOs!
The neat little meatball that'll fit on your spoon,
Uh-oh, SpaghettiOs!
Franco-American,
Uh-oh, SpaghettiOs!

The '73 commercial isn't the one tickling my nostalgia bone. It doesn't sound like the one I remember. The song and product came out several years earlier and is wiki-reported to have been first sung by Jimmie Rodgers, based on his song Oh-Oh, I'm Falling in Love Again from 1958. And I vaguely remember a version with more than one stanza. I could be making this all up, but I don't think it's limited to the two verses in that 70s version.
